Hey guys, I'm back. Dunno if any of you missed me. I'm sorry I haven't been around these past few months... I got a nasty computer virus and had to format, which lost all of my bookmarks. Lame excuse, I know.
When I left I had just gotten my twin boys, Jack and Louie, do you remember me now?
Well, they're full grown now. Louie is smaller than the smallest girl rat I've ever had. If I hadn't met both of their parents I'd swear they were dwarf rats.
Here's an update picture of Jack and Louie.
That's louie in front and Jack in back.
I've had some pretty hard times too...
Bubbles passed away. He got an inner ear infection, pneumonia, conjunctivitis, and an abscess under his arm the size of a silver dollar... all in a week's time. There was no way he was going to make it, and I found it better to put him down before he could suffer. He was a year and a half old. I miss him so much... I had him put down on July 28, 2008.
Rest in peace, my sweet Bubbles.
I have him buried outside my bedroom window. Have any of you ever read the book "Where the Red Fern Grows"? There's a dead plant next to where I buried him. I'm going to dig it up and plant a Lady Fern, since that's the closest thing to a "red fern" (which doesn't actually exist). Corny, I know... but I like the idea. It's either that or Jasmine, since he loved flowers. I might do both if there's room.
So... It's nice to be back
. Hopefully I won't "accidentally forget" to post again for 3 months.
